Avatar… Yes, Really

I know about all of the hype around Avatar, and how everyone thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.  That being said, I had no interest in seeing it.  I had to force myself to watch it last night, more than anything I kind of wanted to see what everyone was talking about.  So I did.

Let me just say that I never went into this movie thinking this would be a blogable experience.  But when the movie was over, I knew that it definitely was.

In my opinion the whole movie was about a sence of entitlement and a bigger picture.  When you think about it, it happens all of the time.  Someone thinks that they need something more than the next and it will benefit more people than you keeping it. 

I wonder what would happen if something was completely eliminated because it wasn’t ours to take and we could no longer get it?  Would the world come to an end?  I doubt it.  We would figure it out, because that’s what we do.  We are smart, even though sometimes we don’t always act that way. 

 If a global law was passed that we could no longer cut down trees the world would not end and we would be just fine.  Yes, people would be out of work, but new jobs would be created.  Where would we get printer paper and toilet paper.  We would figure it out, more jobs would be created to figure this out.  Hopefully this would mean a bigger focus on recycling (that’s just one of my hopes).  

I think that sometime we get so caught up in the next new thing that we forget that sometimes all we need are the basics.  We don’t have to keep taking and taking because we think it is something that we need.  I appreciate the practices of homesteading and sustainable living.  The world is not ours for the taking, everything in life is about give AND take.  Just dont forget the GIVE part.

The Beautiful Truth

Have you seen it?

base_media

The Beautiful Truth is a movie about a 15-year-old boy who wants to find out more about a doctor and his claims of curing cancer.
Dr. Max Gerson claims to have found an alternative way to treat diseases in the 1920’s.  Cameras follow the boy as he proceeds to find out as much as he can about the “cure” for numerous diseases.

The Gerson Therapy is a safe, natural treatment developed by Dr. Max Gerson in the 1920’s that uses organic foods, juicing, coffee enemas, detoxification and natural supplements to activate the body’s ability to heal itself.  Over the past 60 years, thousands of people have used the Gerson Therapy to recover from so-called “incurable” diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease and arthritis.

For me the movie was a little hard to follow, but not hard enough to lose my interest.  It left me wanting to know more about the actual “Gerson method” of curing cancer and other diseases.  I thought it was insightful and it really did make sense.  So go ahead and watch it, I would love to hear your input on this one.
